Just back from a stay at Southlands and I can honestly say its one of the best Guest Houses I have ever stayed in, my dad is still raving about it. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have everything in them that all you really need to do is turn up! Lots of different teas, coffees and even toiletries, these...

Stayed for 1 night as part of our annual race day visit. Arranged an early check in to accommodate the start of the races which was no problem to the owners, Ron & Nicole. Parking is directly outside the B&B which is really convenient and a short walk to both the town centre and York Racecourse. We usually stay on...

Beautiful property in a quiet area 20 minutes walk to the centre of York. My wife and I took our 16 year old grandson so we had the family room, which was ideal, well decorated, clean and with a fridge stocked with water and milk. A large en-suite shower completed this very spacious room. Ron and Nicole were very welcoming...

My husband and I stayed only for 1 night in York. The Southlands is in a lovely peaceful area but not far from the centre, which is a lovely walk past the numerous shops and eateries along Bishopthorpe Road which is a buzzing little area. Ron and Nicole made us feel very welcome. The rooms are lovely - very spacious,...
